Kindergarten Social Studies Books

A set of 11 readers with photos of community members engaged in a range of activities. These books were originally created for the Social Studies Program in Newfoundland and Labrador in the Sheshatshiu dialect of Innu. They focus on: Identity, Roots, and Place. The Sheshatshiu-aimun (print) versions were published by the Department of Education (NL) in collaboration with the Innu Language Project at Memorial University in 2011.
